Notes: One of our favorites gets a DIPA remix. Pours hazy yello with thin white foam. Aromas of dank pineapple tropical fruit. Pallet has notes of bubblegum and tangy citrus. Brewed with pilsner and Vienna malts, fermented with a unique blend of yeasts, and hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Galaxy, and Eldorado, and Mosaic Dust.

Can from AJ’s in Rochester. Not bad. Liked the hop and malt profile, but nothing seemed to take off. Forgettable with just too many good let alone great DDH DIPA’s out there.

Interboro rarely lets me down, and this is another winner!

Well, it finally happened. After a CANcerted effort on my part, The CANQuest (tm) has now exhausted its backlog of Interboro CANlaboration CANs! No problem, though, as there is still a huge backlog to run through, including Interboro-only beers, CANtinuing with this one. Onwards!

From the CAN: "Double Dry Hopped Double India Pale Ale"; "Come Visit Us and Our Tasting Room".

I was very curious about this one, even before the Crack!ing open of the vent. Was it yet CANother Hazebro? What would the future bring? I CANmenced a slow, gentle C-Line Glug in order to find out and when noting totally untoward occurred, I backed off & down. This allowed it to form just over a finger of dense, foamy, rocky, eggshell-white head with the faintest of haze. Frankly, I would be willing to chalk it up to a chill haze, given my reefer's internal temp. Color was an oh-so-slightly-hazy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). Nose was tropical fruity with an underlying pine/eucalyptus coolness. Mmm. Mouthfeel was medium, a little on the light side for the style. The taste was very much of pineapple upside-down cake with pink bubblegum & pine/eucalyptus. I wonder if they didn't sneak some Hefeweizen yeast into this one! Yum. Man, these guys just keep bringing one great beer after CANother. Finish was semi-dry to dry, right on that cusp of my enjoyment WRT this style. I would have preferred it to have been solidly dry, but that's personal. YMMV.

Yellow, no head.

Aroma is blah. Very light wafts of veggie

Straw ,grass. Weird chemical , funky.

Thin body and flat.

Not good. Suprised how well this is rated by others.

Canned on 7/23/2019 and poured into a pub glass. It pours a hazy, bright honey-orange color with a foamy, bright white head and significant lacing. The smell is highly floral; like walking through a greenhouse of flowers. There are also notes of orange/tangerine, lemon, overripe melon, and onion. The taste opens with tangerine and tart lemon, along with bubblegum and sweet malts. I'm also noticing the advertised "unique blend of yeasts" that is difficult to describe. The taste has a flower petal quality. The Mosaic, Citra, and Galaxy hops provide lots of fruit but the Eldorado hops add a strong dose of bitterness at the finish. As it warms I'm noticing increased bitterness and acidity at the finish. This ale is full-bodied but with moderate carbonation, and it seems potent for its 8% ABV. Overall, this is a well-made ale as I would expect from Interboro. it appears a lot of thought went into the recipe. It's a good DIPA but the yeast and floral taste isn't quite my speed. Not a criticism - just an observation.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Empire Wine & Spirits for twenty three dollars! Have never heard of or seen this brew before (new to MA?). No canned-on date that I can see. Very solid brew, but the price point is way too high, would not buy again.

Little nose. Heavy hop taste. Borderline too sweet. Could use a little more bite.

My first from Interboro, but certainly not my last. Big, big citrus pineapple and grapefruit in the nose, probably from the Mosaic, Mosaic Dust, Citra Galaxy and El Dorado hops. Unsure of what “special yeasts” are involved, but whatever’s they are, they’re working fabulously. This 8% Double Dry Hopped DIPA is sure to satisfy the juice heads and anyone else who enjoys “dank.” I’ll be back, for sure!

Outstanding beer from these guys. Spoiled by living in the Northeast with: Treehouse, Trillium, Hill Farmstead, Proclamation, etc - I never know what is average and what is a good beer...This is a solid offering. Nice and bitter but not straight up grapefruit peel, cloudy, hazy, creamy. Love this and wish it were local.

Picked this up a while ago during it's first release and somehow forgot about it as I ended up going through my Interboro beers slightly out of order. This was on part with their other offerings that I've had as it turned out to be a dank, hazy textbook example of something from them and this neck of the woods. Juicy, full, and unfiltered, this went down easily as everything in it came together harmoniously in the end!

Not a bad pour to this as this was cloudy, fluffy, and topped off with plenty of white head that took it's time subsiding. Not terribly bright in hue, the taste was much softer as the pillowy aroma had tons of peach and citrus in it. Both of those were in the taste along the copious amount of malt that gave this plenty of body and mouthfeel. Not a lot of dankness here as the copious hop presence was fruity and sweet to go along with a moderately dry aftertaste. The little carbonation that was there allowed the flavors to linger and dwell, all the way to the next sip...

The amount of alcohol that was detectable was the same too as it was hardly felt on the palate. This felt like juice from the get-go with plenty of malt and moderate tropical fruit thrown in for good measure. Dated 9/5 of last year with "A MILLION TO ONE" written below it, this was another one of Interboro's offerings that was easy to enjoy from start to finish as a bit more aggressiveness would have made this among their best.
